Birth: Jan. 9, 1735
Caroline County
Virginia, USA
Death: Jan., 1812
Amherst County
Virginia, USA

Frances "Frankey" Penn Lee was the wife of (1) Ambrose Lee, and (2) Drury Tucker. She was the daughter of George Penn and Ann Fleming.

After first husband Ambrose Lee died, Frances married 2nd husband Drury Tucker, a widower whose first wife Susanna Douglass had died. When Frances Penn Lee married Drury Tucker, she raised raised his as well as her own children (and their children) together. Her daughter (by Ambrose) married Frances' stepson William Wofford Tucker. Frances, therefore, served at their wedding as both the mother of the bride and step-mother of the groom.

The exact burial location of Frances Penn Lee Tucker and her husbands (1) Ambrose Lee and (2) Drury Tucker has not been confirmed. It is possible one or all of them are buried at Tucker Cemetery in Amherst County, VA. This old historic family graveyard is adjacent to the old Tucker Homeplace on private property. The google map shows this cemetery to be located just off State Route 620 near Indian Creek Road. The cemetery GPS Coordinates are: Latitude: 37.71440, Longitude: -79.08610. A volunteer who photographed the graveyard in January 2013 was unable to locate any headstones from the 1700's still standing. It is possible she is in a now unmarked grave in this graveyard or elsewhere on the property that is believed to have once been part of vast Tucker land holdings in the 1700's and 1800's in Amherst County. Most grave markers from that era were wooden or common field stones, or of other material that easily disintegrated over time. Estate of Drury Tucker and his widow Frances Tucker were settled in Amherst County, VA and disbursed to their children. Will of Drury Trucker referred to his widow as "beloved wife Frankey".
